Does anyone know when the full Newsbeat finishes and resumes? I'd assume they'd go up to the 22nd December, and then return on Wednesday 3rd January?
Chris Smith will be reading the boxing Day news, he always seems to do a random day during the Christmas period.
EDIT: I didn't realise the schedule was already up on the website. Newsbeat is back on the 2nd (quite early). I notice Katie Thisleton and Julia Hardy are both down for a couple of days of early breakfast each between Christmas and New Year, but nobody is down to be doing it the week after.
Christmas Schedule 2017:
Maya Jama in for Alice on 23rd/24th
R1 Superstar Playlist returns Christmas Day 10am-4pm
Boxing Day 1pm-4pm TBA so perhaps that's Dev?
27th is Live Lounge rewind day until 4pm
28th Is Nixtape day until 7pm
29th is Chart of 2017 day until 7pm
Luke Franks in for Alice on the 30th/31st, he's also on NYD 10am-1pm
Cel & Katie doing a NYE Dance Classics show 4pm-7pm, also on 1pm-4pm on the 2nd-5th
